Fascinating seeing this natural siphon in action, but you need to visit later in the year to see it. It takes about 20 minutes to cycle though and is relaxing to watch. The approach up the narrow canyon is lovely and well worth the visit...More

Short drive up the canyon and then an easy hike to the base of the spring. Would recommend in late summer to see the water flow stop and start but enjoyable from spring to fall.
